A half-naked activist sporting bunny ears and a fluffy tail braved the Olympic chill in Pyeongchang to protest the fur trade yesterday but, shivering on high heels, side-stepped the thorny issue of dog meat. As temperatures plunged to minus 16 degrees celsius, hardy animal rights campaigner Ashley Fruno, peeled off down to just a white bra and knickers (pictured above) while waving a sign that read "champions don't wear fur" outside the Olympic media centre.

However, despite withstanding the bone-chilling cold for more than 15 minutes in her skimpy undies, she insisted People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) had no plans to protest South Korea's controversial dog meat trade. "It's certainly cold out here, but it's nothing compared to what the animal go through on fur farms. Unfortunately, fur is being worn by many Koreans. Fur should not be seen at the Olympics," she said.
